I'm a snob

It's not like I discovered it all of a sudden but yesterday evening, while chatting with T I admitted I was/am a snob: I buy fair trade coffee and I take part in Aids Life Cycle… All this because I can afford it. *sigh*
Better than not doing anything huh! Suuuure…

There is something 'unpleasant' about young P: denial and constant renegociation… She had some work to do during her week off which she promised T she would do – it only consisted in reading a book – and of course didn't. This would not be too serious if she was not trying to get away with an excuse: it's not my fault, we didn't have 5mn to spare, etc. T said at one point during the evening at A&D's how much she was becoming an adolescent and, consequently, how less she was a child. He, later, had a hard time stopping her from arguing and making her accept she had 'breached the contract'. I had a hard time trying not to intervene… she's only 10 after all.

I so feel like dancing!

Whats your flava – Tell me whats your flavaI met this fly boy in the club
Went by the name of pecan deluxe
This ice cream was high maintenance
When i took him out,
Man it cost me 20 bucks
Met this bear named walnut whip
Nearly made me sick to the point of throwing up
So i called chocolate chip
Wit the sweet toffe crisp
And i still cant get enough
Your what i want Your what i need
I wanna taste ya (taste ya) take ya home wit me
You look so good
Good enough to eat
I wonder if i can peel your wrapper
If i can be your fantasy

No wonder Mickael Vartan aka Vaughn speaks french without accent: he spent his life travelling from France to the US until he was 18! He just doesn't have the slighest trace of american accent whenever he speaks french and, as I finally watched an episode in the Season II supposedly taking place in Nice, Fr, I was wondering how this was possible… Now I know… and wonder whether his french accent shows? I couldn't tell a New-Yorker from a San Franciscan, though here I can distinguish accents from people living only 100 km away from one another.

Funny, Strange Frustrating how people react when it comes to take over whenever someone has a day off… Instead of acting responsibly and anticipating usual Friday's bottle neck they sit on their hands and wait… It is a fact, repeated ad nauseam, that planning department requires elements from us at the last minute. We never encountered a similar problem at Besançon, though Friday was at least as critical before the week-end.
We've been asked already to change and adapt to the increasing demands from the workshop. I anticipate drastic changes in our future schedules… little autoritarian side of me wants so much to yell orders *sigh*

Like any other company this one gets the very minimum from employees… The only reason I see why this country is still in business is that I speculate other companies in the rest of the world are not doing any better. Specialists in management, human resource, and gourous or all kind can continue saling wind.

Take a deep breath! Think of something nice, peaceful, enjoyable… breaking a few necks is not an option ^_^

I guess what disappoints me most is that I cannot seem to channel my frustration into something constructive and positive like: 'Ok, this you don't want, how about that?' I sulk instead.

D called up yesterday evening… He takes the job. ^_^ the sky was almost instantly blue 🙂

Earlier in the evening my library had finally been delivered with the book I ordered a month ago or so: Une voix dans la nuit d'A.Maupin . That good news alone should have warned me the day would end better than it had started ^_^

Just back from a lunck break I took off, outside the site… D was to come visit my apartment for evaluation of the work on walls + ceilings. As he obviously felt uneasy I took upon myself to release the pressure and let him express his concerns: He's anticipating long weeks away from A and little B.
– No problem! You talk over with A and let me know next week-end.
I have a pretty good idea what his answer will be, which leaves me with the obligation to call back a contractor I asked for an estimate earlier this month.
When will I finally move to the 4 place saint Jean de Maizel? Next month? This year? My patience is wearing desperately thin. *head hanging*

screen shot of an advert broadcasted for the past month. Purpose, not known really. Anyway, I spotted the wind mills and asked around: yes, Areva has invested in other energies than mere nuclear... Mmmm sounds more fun and with better perspective than ... herescreen shot of an advert broadcasted for the past month. This is the version we can access on our intranet. Purpose, unknown really. Anyway, I spotted the wind mills and asked around: indeed, Areva has diversified in other energies than mere nuclear (in order to not keep all eggs in same basket)… Mmmm sounds more fun and with better perspectives than … here. Better suits my political views too.
